The R&B Jukebox celebrates the 85th birthday of Buddy Guy.

From playing a two-stringed guitar to having a highway named after him, we’ll complement the PBS American Masters documentary by playing his songs, influences, and original versions of the covers he’s played over the course of his long career.

George “Buddy” Guy was born on July 30, 1936 (age 85 years) in Lettsworth, LA.

The party begins at 6 pm on Saturday, August 14 with R&B Jukebox host Easy Bill. Only on KUVO JAZZ!
